The Aye-Aye is the world's largest nocturnal primate. It lives in Madagascar.
Aye-Aye Books was founded by Sapna Agarwal and Martin Vincent in 2007, having moved to Glasgow the previous year and found plenty of artists and galleries, but no bookshop to provide critical and contextual fuel. The first shop was in a building called the Briggait - a former fish market then occupied by Glasgow Sculpture Studios, who generously rented what had been their gallery space. After a year GSS moved out of the Briggait, and Aye-Aye had to relocate (though we still have some cupboards at the new GSS space).
In 2008 Aye-Aye opened its shop in the foyer of the Centre for Contemporary Arts, within the Grade 1 listed Alexander 'Greek' Thomson's 'Grecian Chambers' on Sauchiehall Street, where it began channelling the radical spirit of the venue previously known as the Third Eye Centre.
